FAQ for Tomato Confit
Can I use cherry tomatoes?
Yes! Cherry tomatoes work great for this dish. As do Beefsteak, Heirloom and even Roma’s. For this recipe I am suggesting vine ripened for the freshness factor. But any fresh tomato and especially home grown, will do just fine.
How Do I Store Tomato Confit?
The best way to store is in the fridge in an air tight container. Tomato Confit will keep for about a week.
Can I use a baking sheet?
If you don’t have a baking dish or a casserole style dish to use, I would suggest using a skillet over a baking sheet as the juices and olive oil may spill out due to the low lip on a baking sheet. However, if a baking sheet is all you have, I would recommend lining the bottom rack of your oven with some foil for spillage.
